too much typing—since 2003


second verse, history as farce

First, the tragic incompetence and/or arrogance that led to the Giuliana Sgrena incident...and then the farce of the official report: as Kevin Drum reports in Washington Monthly's online edition, the report was redacted for reasons of national security...but was distributed to the press as a .pdf file...which could be mined for text, including the rather inefficiently redacted text. As a commenter at the site puts it (with minor spelling errors), this is another example of the Bush administration's "relentless dishonesty and arrogance wrapped tightly in incompetence."

ps: I've probably used this title's pun before...oh well.
